‘I Trusted Him’: Biden ‘Sorry’ To See McConnell Step Down

via PBS

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell announced his plans to step down from his leadership role in November.

President Biden acknowledged their disagreements but expressed trust in their relationship.

“I trusted him, we had a great relationship, we fought like hell. But he never, never, never misrepresented anything. I’m sorry to hear he’s stepping down,” Biden said.

McConnell, 82, plans to finish his Senate term until 2027.

“I turned 82 last week. The end of my contributions are closer than I prefer. Father Time remains undefeated,” McConnell said. “I’m no longer the young man sitting in the back hoping colleagues remember my name. It’s time for the next generation of leadership. … Time rolls on. There will be a new custodian of this great institution.”

“Next year, I intend to turn this job over to a Republican Majority Leader. I have full confidence in my conference to choose my replacement and lead our country forward,” he said.

Potential successors like Sens. Thune, Barrasso, and Cornyn have been mentioned, though none have confirmed their candidacy yet.
